Matiya, the Irish 1,000 Guineas winner, is expected to be supplemented today for Sunday's Prix de Diane at Chantilly at a cost of FF140,000 (pounds 18,445).

"She's come out of the race very well. I'm very pleased with her progress," Ben Hanbury, hertrainer, said yesterday. "She is getting mentally and physically stronger all the time, and she did a little bit of work today. She looks a million dollars."

In New York, the David Loder-trained South Salem will work on the track at Belmont today in preparation for Saturday's Belmont Stakes. South Salem is to be ridden by Julie Krone instead of Richard Hughes.
